The data reviewed in this report indicate that the ESCAP region has made some remarkable achievements in the area of human resources development. Mortality in all countries is much lower than it was a few decades ago. Countries have expanded schooling, health care and employment in step with the expansion of their workforces and have experienced sustained periods of economic growth that are unmatched in human history. At the same time, the report also shows that Governments and people in the ESCAP region still have much to do to bring standards of health, education and employment up to universally satisfactory levels. This report is being made available to a wide audience for reference purposes to demonstrate how the mix of success and failure in the ESCAP region is a rich source of lessons for development policy.
